    Gary, I suffer from deep seated security issues...I only feel comfortable if the wood pile is head high!

    I feel the same about vehicle maintenance products...once I used Zaino, I purchased a multi-year supply. I simply hate to not have reserves...wine, beer, hair spray...you name it. So change is hampered in my life by economic reality...once I like something, I create financial handcuffs, that eliminate future decision making issues.

    I know, I'm sick, loathsome, and stuck in my ways...if you think those are terrible things...my students call me an attendance Nazi, and they are not far from wrong...my wife tried to impose a "prescribed load limit" on cases of Royal Purple lubricants...but that failed miserably...if she knew how much Zaino I had...I think she would cut my allowance!

    Roy:
    Evidently I snuck in under the same umbrella excepting that I couldn't bear the thought of waking up to a female version of myself in the morning so I am single. I stock up on everything, buy it on sale when I can, and forever whine when the store runs out or the manufacturer changes his product.
    The only fix for me is a good stiff shot of single malt scotch upon occasion.

    Gary, I checked the site and it appears they no longer have the "big blue towels". That's actually what they were called. There are no tags on the towels so I can't answer your questions.
    They are approx 24 x 24 and hold ten times their weight in water. They are a waffle weave micro.

    Sorry.

    7 Vipers, Ford GT, 3 Vettes, 5 Caddies, 2 M5 Bimmers etc etc --I have used Meguires, Zymol, Zaino, and VERY expensive exotic polishes --you name it and have "sworn" by several. In the end have come to the conclusion it just does NOT matter.

    Wash the car religiously, blow dry it, use a quality wax and microfiber towels. You will look as good as anyone at the car show.

    Big Blue Towel

    Griots towels in kit or can buy individually. Nothing has ever come close and if not satisfied, they would take it back, no questions.

    Tried once and I've been using this brand of products solely for 3 years now.

    AHOY Homesite,

    I had a 42 ft cabin cruiser on Lake Michigan for 7 years, New Buffalo Michigan to be exact. Your Pic brought back some memories.

    She had twin engine Cummins Bta-590 diesels.

    Oh snap, people, I can't even afford a rubber duckie for my bathtub. It has come to my attenetion that there is some serious money in this forum. I am definitely in the wrong place. I am so broke that I have to take a co-signer with me to pay cash.

    Re: What polish-wax are you using?

    Just wondering, do you have to use 2-3 different products when waxing? I'm looking for something that you just have one process. I know there will be a trade off but i'm ok with that. Is Zaino a "one step" product? Thanx

    I use a one step sealer wax called REJEX on my white diamond. Works wonderful.

    That looks like some serious power on the back of that boat. Why is it that the outside engines have shorter lower units? I can see that they extend below the hull about the same as the center engines, but does that change the turning characteristics?
